These are uncertain and difficult times for people around the world, and our hearts are with those who have been affected by the virus, and their loved ones. On a personal level, this is the time to focus on taking care of loved ones and ourselves, while also reaching out to those in our communities who need our help and support.
Due to the unprecedented nature of the societal and business impacts, we are assuring our customers, partners and employees that our number one priority is their health and well-being. To that end we wish to share an important decision regarding our customer events in May and also to reassure customers that we continue to be fully operational during these challenging times.
Planful’s Tour 2020 Update
As we know too well, even the best-laid plans can change. To say that myself and the Planful team were looking forward to spending quality time with customers, partners, and old and new friends at the Planful Tour in May, is an understatement. Given the latest data about COVID-19 (coronavirus), the situation suggests the best decision we can make right now–for the safety and well-being of our customers, partners, our Planful team members, and our broader community–is to switch the three in-person Planful Tour events to a virtual event in May. We will share more event details very soon.
A virtual event will still allow us to unpack in detail our vision around Continuous Planning, a capability more and more companies are finding essential to navigate such a dynamic business world. We will also be sharing our product roadmap, and a number of compelling customer case studies and thought leadership content. We are very confident our attendees will get great value from this free, online event.
Business Continuity in General
In terms of business continuity, our team and the Planful FP&A cloud platform continue to remain operational to serve our customers’ needs. Our team and partners have a strong culture of virtual project delivery, so project work will continue unabated. Further, we’ll continue to deliver the service and support you have come to expect from Planful. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and listening carefully to health officials to guide our actions. During this time of uncertainty, we’re committed to being transparent and keeping everyone informed along the way. Please visit our site to review detailed information about the actions we’re continuously taking specific to COVID-19.
The times are uncertain worldwide from a business perspective too. But as we’ve learned from other crises, the leaders and companies who emerge from trying times even stronger are the people who adapt quickly to changing dynamics and build resilient, agile organizations. This gives me confidence that Planful and its customers will come through this challenge stronger than ever.
